Here’s a simplified recipe for the easiest flaky gluten-free vegan puff pastry using the quick rough puff method:


  • 1 1/4 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if your flour blend already contains it)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1/3 cup ice-cold water
  • Additional gluten-free flour for dusting


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the gluten-free all-purpose flour, xanthan gum (if using), and salt. Whisk together until well combined.
  2. Add the chilled and cubed vegan butter to the flour mixture. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs with some larger pea-sized pieces remaining.
  3. Gradually add the ice-cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, while gently mixing the dough with a fork or your hands. Mix until the dough just comes together and forms a shaggy mass. Be careful not to overwork the dough.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead it a few times until it comes together into a smooth ball. Shape the dough into a rectangle.
  5. Roll out the dough into a rectangle that is about 1/4 inch thick. Fold the top third of the dough down towards the center, then fold the bottom third up over the top, as if folding a letter. This is the first fold.
  6. Turn the dough 90 degrees so that the open end is facing you, then roll out the dough into another rectangle. Repeat the folding process (second fold).
  7. Repeat the rolling and folding process two more times (third and fourth folds), for a total of four folds. This creates the layers in the puff pastry.
  8. Wrap the puff pastry dough tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using. Alternatively, you can freeze the dough for later use.
  9. Once chilled, the puff pastry is ready to be used in your favorite recipes, such as turnovers, palmiers, or savory pies. Enjoy your flaky gluten-free vegan puff pastry creation!
